For everyone who would like to come and hear our programme of interesting speakers, we start the new season on Thursday 10 October 2019, in the Community Centre at 7.30 pm. Please see the Programme attached below for more details. If you would like to come as a non member or as a guest of a member you would pay £3 per meeting, and members pay an annual subscription of £15, payable in October.
We are hoping to increase our membership and therefore hope to see more people coming to join us, and that includes anyone from the surrounding villages who would be interested. Theres is no particular gardening knowledge required! just an interest in getting together to listen to our interesting and varied speakers.
